I'm looking for opinions on a backpack style bag to fit a gripped 7D and 600 F4 L IS.
Please let me know what you bought and why you chose it over other brands etc.
Thank you for your opinions.

I have the Mk1 version which held my 600 F4 IS Mk1 amd a 1D4. It is a little snug now I have an 800 F5.6 but it will hold it with the 1D4 attached.
I normally use a Lowepro Super Trekker AW, which frankly is a better pack, but it is much heavier and reduces mobility a bit.

I got the Tamrac Expedition 8 Backpack for my 500 f4 mk1 with 7d gripped and kenko teleconverter. I don't know if it would fit the 600 or not, but I'd suggest looking at a Tamrac bag.

I love the memory card holders that use the flagging system so you know which cards are empty and which cards have been shot. It is extremely comfortable, much more than my small Lowepro.

It also can fit my 40D body (no lenses attached) and a couple of lenses to the side of the 500. If I have to I can fit the 500+7d+tc, 40d body, 100-400L and a flash, but it is a tight fit and not one I would want to hike with. You can also attach a tripod to it, but I never do since I'm not hiking with it.


Everyday use: 7D2, 1.4x v3 Canon TC (sometimes the 2x v2 Canon TC), Canon 500mm f4 L IS USM; 6D, 24-105L

Guragear Kiboko 30l for me, as I can have the 600 one side and the 300 and bodies the other..

I use the Gura Gear Kiboko but it doesn't fit the 600 with the body attached. But has the other half of the bag to store more lenses and bodies, extenders etc. If I just want to go out with the 600 and my 1DX I use the Tamrac Super Telephoto Backpack. It fits the 600 with body attached and even the 1.4 TC attached. But almost no other room for anything else. http://www.tamrac.com …s/supertelephot​olenspack/ (external link)

I guess I'd prefer a case that will fit the lens with body attached.
Thanks.

The Lowepro Lens Trekker 600 or 600 Mk2 will do the job (with a pro body attached) and they are light. There are better packs out there but they tend to be bigger, heavier and more expensive.
I like my Lowepro Super Trekker but, fully kitted out, it is over 5 kilos before you put a memory card in it - let alone a big lens! That is why I still keep my Lens Trekker 600.

Anyone have any input on the Tamrac 5793? Looks like a decent bag.

It looks like the Kinesis might fit my combo with the hood in shooting position and body attached. Are there any other bags that will fit this setup?

I just bought the Tamrac 5793 for my 300 f2.8 L IS WITH the newest 2X TC attached to a 1D4 ready to shoot. The total length of that is 20 1/4 inch and it fits but with only a bit more room for more length. I did NOT want more space nor more bulk than necessary. If memory serves me right the whole thing came in at about 13-14 pounds on a cheap bathroom scale.

This is how it looks now that the covering kit has been installed (ordered it with the bag & a few other accessories needed.
